    Default Neverball (Similar to Monkey Ball)
    I just found this on Installer this morning! It's pretty much a free version of Super Monkey Ball. I've played the OS X version for quite a while now and it's a lot of fun. The iPhone version is pretty good too!

    Here are a few links:

    Any tips how you guide through the menu? I fint it difficult to start the games. It's seems like the touch response isn't working well at the moment. Or you need some kind of magic finger?

    After some fighting against the menu and finally when I enter the games, it's pretty much fun. I guess you will need alot of patiency to master the controls

    It mentions how to control the menus when you first start the game. What you need to do is drag your finger around the screen like you would a mouse. Then use a second finger to simulate a click while keeping that first finger on the option you want.

    It's kind of tricky... but works.

    funny game but very difficult to play need time to handle the ball correctly.

    TIP : The menu is working with press/release feature means hold your finger a second above the button than release it, this way you can navigate through the menu

    Enjoy!!!

    The controls are not very good. The ball gets going way to fast, even when you're hardly tilting the phone. Having seen Super Monkey Ball at WWDC, this does not even compare. The graphics were much prettier, the controls much more precise, on Monkey Ball.
    However, this app is free, and it has potential. It still needs a lot of work, and is not worth playing right now.

    It seems to be worth playing here... yeah, the controls are a bit touchy, but it's not bad and totally playable.

    Make sure that you're holding it perpendicular to the ground when you play. If you hold it parallel with the ground, it'll go crazy.

    Good tip, thanks. Using it that way makes the game quite playable, and pretty fun.

    There is a bit of screen flicker when the game first starts, but it goes away once you start playing.

    I installed this and it gave me nothing but problems. First started it up and it would flash the ringer volume back and forth and then when that stopped the touch wasn't being responsive. Finally got it to go to the first level and it just sat there, didn't do a thing. Didn't get to play it.

    You need to slow down the accelerometer. The ball moves way to fast, which makes it hard to play.

    Any other OpenGL apps running at the same time will cause this.

    yes. everyone must remember its a port from a mac to the iPhone/iPod Touch its gonna be buggy. Like every website Ive seen that mentions this game every person just complains complains complains. Im more than sure the developer realizes many of the bugs, but again remember this is ALSO FREE. If you dont like than go buy Monkey Ball in a few days.
